LAW AND LEGALITY CONCEPT IN A.S. PUSHKIN’S TRAGEDY “BORIS GODUNOV”
Gavrilchenko O.V.
Abstract

The article attempts to reveal the complexity and stereoscopic nature of the conflict in the Pushkin’s tragedy “Boris Godunov” through categories of law and the legality of authorities in their historical, legal and moral understanding. The author of the work takes notice on the fact that in the play two views on the essence and origin of the tsarist power - the national-Orthodox (religious-symbolic perception of the tsar’s power) and the western (the desire for formal legality) collide. The first point of view is expressed by the people, the second is expressed by Boris Godunov. Pushkin examines different ideas about the legality and shows how their clash creates a situation in which one of the real historical forces is manipulated by others, and the mismatch of the notion of legality leads to a conflict between the ruling tsar and the people.

AUTHOR STRATEGIES IN RYURIK IVNEV’S “SUN IN THE COFFIN”. BOOK OF POEMS
Isaev G.G.
Abstract

The author’s problem in Ryurik Ivnev’s ‘The Sun in the Coffin’ (1921) is studied from the author’s perspectives. It is concluded that at least three Ryurik Ivnev’s strategies as an author can be distinguished: the first, the least obvious, coming from his youthful excitement about Nadson’s neo-romantic poetry, Baudelaire’s and Blok’s symbolism and appearing in a very weakened form, can be called a decadent one. The second strategy is determined by the poet’s recent belonging to egofuturism. The third one was formed under the influence of imaginism aesthetics, to which the poet was attracted when writing the book. Ryurik Ivnev’s strategies, spontaneously but sometimes consciously, were aimed at forming the literary image of the author, identified with the persona. The themes and motives of the book are concentrated around the hypertrophic and screened in the text «I» which becomes the center of Ryurik Ivnev’s poetic worldview. All the strategies are intricately intertwined and give rise to the quality of the style that distinguishes sharply ‘The Sun in the Coffin’ against the background of the Russian poetry of the 1920s and which can be referred to as surrealism.
